Performance Discipline
Physical theatre
SMORENBERG/SANTARCIEL is a theatre duo based in The Netherlands. Their collaboration started in 2014 at the Academy of Theater and Dance in Amsterdam, where Rob Smorenberg (1993) and Fabián Santarciel la Quintana (1971) met. Since then they made three performances: rebel (2014), Us (2015), Onbenoembaar (2017).

Their theatre talks about the needs and the limitations of us, human beings and how we deal with it. From this fascination, their work process departs from a specific action that is carried out to an extreme in the hope of finding an answer, creating a handhold. It often ends in raw and absurd performances with a strong physical impact, attempting to combine the banal with the poetic, the everyday with the philosophical, and the thinking with the action.

Their work has been so far shown mainly in The Netherlands and in Uruguay within the framework of Project Tráfico (Traffic Project), an initiative of Fabián, trying to strike a cultural bridge between Uruguay and the Netherlands, where SMORENBERG/SANTARCIEL plays an important role. And they are excited about the idea to share their work with other audiences, in other countries and continents.
